In recent years, the Internet has witnessed the introduction of many peer-to-peer systems designed to realize large-scale data sharing. These platforms exhibit interesting features like self-configuration, self-healing and complete decentralization, which make them appealing for employment in ad hoc environments as well. However, the impact of ad hoc(More)
MobileMAN is a project funded by the Future and Emerging Technologies arm of the IST Programme of the the European Commission. This project investigates the potentialities of the Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET's) paradigm. Specifically, the project aims at defining and developing a metropolitan area, self-organizing, and totally wireless network, called(More)
— The similarities between peer-to-peer (p2p) systems and ad hoc networking can be considered a duality in terms of computation model, policies for resource distribution, reliability and resiliency. Recently, self-organizing overlay networks like CAN, Chord and Pastry have been proposed as platforms for building decentralized and distributed applications(More)
In the context of ubiquitous and pervasive computing, pub-lish/subscribe middleware is gaining momentum due to its loosely coupled communication scheme. In this paper we present Q, a publish/sub-scribe service conceived to operate in the context of mobile ad hoc networks. With Q, the overlay network that routes events from publishers to subscribers(More)
Cross layering has recently emerged as a new trend to cope with performance issues of mobile ad hoc networks. The concept behind this technique is to exploit local information produced by other protocols, so as to enable optimizations and deliver better network performance. However, the need for a new interaction paradigm inside the protocol stack has to(More)
A polysaccharide-flavonoid conjugate was developend and proposed for the treatment of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). The conjugate was synthesized by free radical grafting reaction between catechin and dextran. The chemical characterization of the conjugate was obtained by UV-Vis, 1H-NMR, FT-IR and GPC analyses, while the functionalization degree(More)
The aim of this deliverable is to present the validation results of the architecture, protocols and services designed for the MobileMAN project. This deliverable therefore represents the complement of Deliverable D13. Specifically, D13 presents the MobileMAN architecture and protocols, while in this deliverable the solutions we devised are validated.(More)
